Any suggestion of card swap for Jaina until I have crafted it? Thinking about Lich king maybe or do you have any other suggestion?

Sure, The Lich King could work, but you will be losing out on the long-term value generated by Jaina, so make sure to craft her soon.

can i fit in dragoncaller alana for extra value instead of some card in this list?

If the meta is slow enough for you to swap in Dragoncaller Alanna, you should swap an anti-aggro card out. Ice Barrier does nothing but "heal", so that would be the first card to be removed.

I've seen a lot of players using Dragoncaller Alanna and doing well with her.

The value you can generate with it can be great especially if you drop it after your opponent burned their best AoE like Psychic Scream or Shadowreaper Anduin.

The downside is it might be high cost dead card in your hand for a while if you draw it early.

I would be very careful using Frozen's list.  It is teched heavily to beat highlander priest, and generally preforms very poorly vs warlock.  He designed his tournament line up with the intention of banning warlock every game (almost everyone at the world championship designed there line up to either beat priest or warlock then banned out the other one in every game).  Alex is rather bad in every match up, except highlander priest, you can cut her (the deck isn't a burn deck, it is a slow grindy control deck, the only reason it runs alex is so you can live through the 30 damage burst priest puts on, clear the board + second ice block, followed up by alex to stabilize, this is your game plan vs highlander priest and the only real way you can beat them, barring a strong dirty rat yoink), but you will lose a lot of percentage vs priest.  Personally, I would cut 1 dirty rat, both familiars (they are much worse with the number of spiteful decks running around, and in general can fizzle quite often vs warlock, and add in 1 blizzard, alanna, and another golakka.  Warlock is going to be your toughest match up, you really lack the burn to threaten them, geist is your best card in this match up, destroying dark pact means they have a much harder time pressuring you early.  Then all you have to do (I say this like it is easy, it really isn't) is clear every single doom guard they summon, then attrition them out with jaina.  If you want to improve this match up, find some way to add in a couple doomsayers, then you can clear the board, drop a doomsayer, and tempo swing with alanna, or add in a spell breaker or two (the spell breakers are better, but doomsayers are good against aggro).  Against control lock, if you don't have silence, you almost always will lose to turbo rin (normal control lock is much rarer then cube lock though), and really there isn't much you can do against this.
